Ozzy doesn’t “know who’s going to carry the flag in the future”

LOS ANGELES, CA - JANUARY 26: Musician Ozzy Osbourne attends the 56th GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on January 26, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
Ozzy Osbourne
had some interesting things to say in a recent interview with Kerrang! regarding this generation's batch of rockers.

Ozzy said, “I honestly don’t know who’s going to carry the flag in the future – but I wish someone would hurry up. None of us are getting any younger, you know.”

As if that wasn’t pseudo-insulting enough, Ozzy went on to say “no one looks like a rock star” and that he has “…a problem telling who’s in the band and who’s in the (road) crew.”

Well, Ozzy…as far as the “rock star look and attitude” is concerned; not every rock star can’t just throw on a dress and urinate on a national landmark.  (Remember The Alamo?)  Believe it or not, some of today’s rock stars have learned from other’s mistakes.
